I've had my hatchling Nelson for 3 days now and I'm not sure if he's pooped.
I soak him every morning for 20 minutes after he wakes up and I was surprised that he hasn't pooped while being soaked.
How often do they poop? Should I be worried? I know it's possible he pooped somewhere in his enclosure and I just haven't seen it (or he ate it :rolleyes:) but I can't help but be worried about my little guy!

I wouldn't worry just yet...like you said, he could have eaten it, it could be small enough you're missing it. They don't always poop in the water...

I wouldn't worry to, much often times they eat their poop so you prob wouldn't see it. give it some time and don't worry so much.

Katie don't you worry, it's pretty normal to worry as a new tort mom! YAY for him eating his poop LOL. (meaning that he actually pooped to be able to eat it :D)
